Yesterday I pulled this book out to make my fave biscotti, the Gingerbread Biscotti. Heavenly yum. I added dried cranberries and white chocolate chips to my batter and they turned out perfect. As far as I'm concerned, my holiday baking has now officially begun!

has anyone made the pumpkin pie brownies? if so what did you think?
also, did you really line the 8" or 9" square baking pan (not glass) with parchment paper or did a good spray with non-stick spray do the trick?

i have made the pumpkin pie brownies twice now and am going to make them again later this week.
i really liked them.

make sure you use semi sweet chocolate and not unsweetened like i did the first time

i used a 9" springform pan and i never took them off the bottom part i just made sure when cutting them not to like saw down into it but just push the knife so i wouldnt cut my pan

thanks, for the tip! perhaps i'll line my baking pan with aluminum foil, that would make it really easy to lift the entire batch right out of the pan.

In general, can you freeze cookie dough for later use? Any suggestions for which cookies it would work best for, and should I freeze individual blobs or make a roll and slice it up when it's time to bake? I'm more likely to do drop cookies like macadamia ginger or chocolate chip so I'm hoping those can freeze.

Yes, cookie dough freezes just fine. You could freeze blobs or a roll - but it'd probably be easier to freeze them in the individual pieces so you can just pop them in the oven when you want a cookie. A roll would require a little defrosting and seems like a mostly unnecessary step (unless you're freezing dough for cut out cookies or something else you'd need to roll out).

I got a cookie cutter that has a pattern imprinted on it so when you stamp out the cookies there is an indentation of the pattern. Any ideas which of the recipes would work best with a cookie cutter like this and not puff so much when baking that the pattern is lost?

DEG, I made the sugar cookies from the book this past weekend and they hold their shape well. I can't speak for the imprinting part because I just used regular cookie cutters, but I'm thinking they should work. They didn't puff or spread too much for me. I hope your cookies work, whatever recipe you use!

Today I made Peanut Butter Pillows and Oh La La's from the book. It was chocolate-scented heaven in my house! I am so in love with both of these recipes; I give a slight edge to the pillows, because peanut butter! But they're both scrumptious.

Spekulatius cookies? Since they're usually rather 3D?

I just finished putting together the treat boxes for my kiddos' teachers, and this year all four cookies were from this book. I made sell your soul pumpkin cookies, which seriously, I would sell my soul for. Iced sugar cookies. Fudgy chocolate oatmeal cookies. And the one I changed a bit was that I took the dough from the oreos, cut the vanilla extract in half and added 2 teaspoons of peppermint extract and made chocolate peppermint stained glass cookies. I used a candy cane shaped cookie cutter to make a cut out, filled that with crushed candy canes, and that melted when the cookies baked.

The iced sugar cookies look so perfect.

Amazing! You make me wish I had stuck with teaching, DEG! Haha, I would probably never get anything as nice as that though. Lovely idea with the oreas too - I just bought little holly, star, and christmas tree shaped cutters so might have to give it a try sometime.

So pretty, DEG!!

We made nutty wedding (holy moly my favorite), cowboy, magical coconut bars, and sugar cookies. Loved them all, and so did the non-veg's that I baked with, and the people we gave them to.

I'm going to make the Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles for gluten-free family members. I am going to use the book's gf recipe for the flours. Of course the recipe calls for 1-2/3c flour so I am nervous about how to do that (because the flour recipe makes more than 1c) Hopefully it will be forgiving and I'll be able to tell if the consistency is ok. I've made the cookies the regular way a couple of times.

could you double the GF flour mix and then just measure out what you need? i think you might need to use a bit more flour when baking gluten free anyway.

I'm glad you said that, that's what I thought might be best. I was thinking that I can do the 1 cup as 1 batch of the flour mixture, then make a 2nd batch of the flour mixture and divide it into thirds. I think it would be easier than doing the math. :) The book does mention that the flour mixture comes out to more than 1 cup because gluten-free flour absorbs liquid differently.
Thanks!

I took the mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles to a party last night, and they were all gobbled up. I think next time I will try to cut down on the oil though; they leave a greasy residue on fingers, etc.

It was great to have a hit in a tough crowd!

Question about the Sell Your Soul pumpkin cookies: I've never made them before and was wondering if it'd work to double the recipe and use a 15-oz. can of pumpkin (the recipe calls for 2 cups). Maybe reduce it a tiny bit less? Or would that be meddling with wizardry?

Yes, that is exactly what I did because I needed a double batch and had canned pumpkin. They turned out great. Definitely my favorite of the four I made last week. They just seemed so appropriate for the season.

The pumpkin cookies came out AMAZING - will definitely be using this recipe a lot in the future. They aren't very pretty, so I'm torn between drizzling some glaze on them for our guests tonight or leaving them all inconspicuous so I can keep them all for myself.

The Pecan Caramel Bars came out so good, perfectly gooey. They received many compliments. But SO. MUCH. sugar and fat. Definitely not an everyday treat.

Update: I was told that these cookies were gone within 1/2 hr of getting there. And there were tons of other cookies/treats there. So that says something. :) Success!
